« Pleasurably Lost is the culmination of Benjamin´s previous records. It´s an eclectic mix of organic instrumentation, ambience and field recordings. Almost all of the songs on this album are based around the piano or the guitar creating lush textures and subtle harmonies.
Songs start out tender and fragile, all build up like a patchwork of the organic and the electric, weaving a soft and warm canvas of sound. It´s multilayered to say the least, and as far as headphone records go this album is downright luxurious. The album is dedicated and inspired by the book "Ferdydurke" written by the polish author Witold Gombrowicz in 1937. There was something otherworldly and epic about the book that inspired and continues to inspire Benjamin ».
